Crockpot Ranch Chicken Taco Recipe- Menu Card 12

When autumn hits I find myself using my crockpot much more often. It’s so nice to come home from a long day at work and to have the aroma of a delicious dinner hit you as soon as you walk in the door. Knowing that dinner can be on the table in minutes without a bunch of fuss is a great feeling. One of my favorite crockpot meals is my Crockpot Ranch Chicken Taco Recipe.

When I became an Old El Paso brand ambassador I knew immediately that I had to share my Crockpot Ranch Chicken Taco Recipe with all of you. It’s delicious and super easy to make. A great Tex Mex fusion meal.

When I was a kid we used to have tacos for dinner every Friday night. All week long I would look forward to taco night. Friday nights meant the end of a long week, looking forward to 2 days with no school, TGIF programming on TV (Urkel anyone?) and my favorite meal. Tacos were and still are my favorite food in the whole world. I crave tacos more than I crave any other meal.

Old El Paso makes dinnertime easy, combine it with a crockpot meal and it makes for a super easy meal. Try making this Crockpot Ranch Chicken Taco Recipe next week and make Taco Tuesday (or Taco Friday as it was in my house) a weekly tradition!
